Saint Basil Pre Cana has been ministering to engaged couples in and around the Arch Diocese of Boston for over 25 years. We have an excellent, thought provoking, interactive marriage preparation program. There are eight (8) Friday – Saturday sessions that run from September through June. The program is fast paced, informative and enjoyable. Couples find it to be an opportunity to cover some important subjects regarding things to expect in their future together. Our goal is to help in any way we can to prepare you for marriage in the Catholic Church. Our team of married couples present a wide variety of topics through personal sharing and open discussion.

Sessions start on Friday evening – 7:00 – 9:30 PM Concluding on Saturday – 9:00 – 4:00 PM. Refreshments & snacks on Friday Night and Saturday Morning coffee & donuts, Hot lunch is included on Saturday. A couples tuition fee is $140. This is not an overnight.

Here is what they said…

“Chris and I just wanted to thank everyone for putting in the time and effort for the Pre-Cana program. Also a very special thanks to Gary and Carol for all the hard work they did. The program really addressed a lot of aspects of a marriage that were very helpful. The talks definitely hit home and it was good to know we are not alone by growing little by little everyday with Christ. The talk by Carol and Gary related to us very much and it was so uplifting to know that with God we can make our marriage wonderful too. Thank you and God bless, Anna”

“We wanted to say a big thank you for the wonderful Pre Cana weekend. It was so well done. Please thank all the volunteer couples and our compliments to the chef – lunch was great. We are now even more excited about getting married. 

Thanks again, 
Catherine and Gregory”

I would like to extend our heartfelt thanks, as you went above and beyond to provide such a special pre-cana program last weekend. My fiancé, Ryan, and and I both truly enjoyed it and we were so impressed with how organized and meaningful it was. We feel so much more prepared as a couple entering into marriage and we have still been talking about the things we took away from the weekend. Thank you so much again, from the bottom of our hearts!
